Tomorrow is my first race of the season. Nice little sprint tri, the Naval Station Newport/Sprint Triathlon. I will be doing the swim and bike portion of the tri and a friend of mine, Justin, will be doing the run. We are looking to have a good time and not set any course records. I will post a race report as soon as I can.
Thursday and Friday I hit the bike path for my first ride of the season. WOW I am way out of shape. 7 miles on Thursday and 9 on Friday. I was dead by the end of each one, but felt great that I got out there and did it. For me its all about my frame of mind. I am so excited right now to get out there and train for whatever TRi I sign up for. This coming week is going to be awesome! Sun is expected all week so I will get in a few nice rides. I am aiming for the full bike path ride within 2 weeks. I don't want to over extend myself. I could probably do it now, but not in the amount of time I have for my lunch break.
Well folks its been over 5 months since my last post. I have been doing absolutely nothing in the way of training or anything. Its freakin May!!!! I should at least have a good 2 months of base training in by now!!!! Well I kicked my self in the ass and got it into full gear today. I hit the Y for my first swim. I did 600m which felt like I just swam the English Channel. Tomorrow looks to be my first bike ride of the year, can you believe that? I am wicked excited to get back out there.
To tell you the truth, I have also started Weight Watchers again. I slacked off big time since December and now, today, was a start of something new. I am super excited and can't wait to tackle all the obstacles that are thrown at me.
I have no races planned so far. I have a few on my mind. As with any summer, I need to coordinate with the family to see what weekends are available.
